Footage from Sky5 showed Los Angeles police chasing a white Kia on the northbound 405 Freeway around 10:30 p.m.

Los Angeles police said officers were investigating a possibly stolen vehicle when they started chasing the car near Victoria Avenue and 67th Street in South L.A., Officer Tony Im said.

The driver, believed to be female, allegedly attempted to hit officers and crashed into a patrol vehicle.

The driver led them on a moderate-speed chase on the highway through the San Fernando Valley and West L.A., then back to the streets of South L.A. near where the pursuit started, video from Sky5 showed.

Around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday, authorities said the still-moving vehicle had four flat tires.

As seen below, Sky5 followed the chase for about two hours before heading into another pursuit in the downtown L.A. area.

No further details were immediately available.
